UFC Fight Night 13: Florian vs. Lauzon, Hamill vs. Bonnar Potential Co-Main Events

Major details have begun to emerge regarding UFC Fight Night 13 which is tentatively slated for April 2nd. Here’s what we know about the event so far (via MMA Junkie):

  • No bout agreements have been signed but it appears Kenny Florian will take on Joe Lauzon in a lightweight main event while Matt Hamill may face Stephan Bonnar in a light heavyweight co-main event.
  • The event will take place April 2nd and will air, as usual, on Spike TV. It will also serve as the lead-in for the seventh, all-middleweight season of The Ultimate Fighter which features Forrest Griffin and Quinton Jackson as coaches.
  • No location or venue has beenĀ  determined though MMA Junkie suggests Denver, Colorado is a potential location. Earlier this year broke news regarding a fall-2007 UFC Fight Night event that would be potentially held in Colorado at the University of Colorado’s 5,000-seat Magnass Arena. Though that event never materialized The Magnass Arena as well as the 20,000-seat Pepsi Center are among the potential venues if the UFC holds the event in Denver. The UFC’s first two events were held in Denver though the UFC has not held an event in the state since 1995.
  • No other rumored fighters for the card have been confirmed though if the event is ultimately held in Colorado a number of current UFC fighters have ties to the state including Nate Marquardt and Corey Hill.
